First Friday featuring Joe Cunningham

First Friday featuring Joe Cunningham

Friday, September 4, 2020

The International Quilt Museum is pleased to host quiltmaker and musician Joe Cunningham for a lecture on September 4, 2020, at 5:30 p.m. Cunningham's program is called "The Shock of the Old: How Modern Quilting Continues the Tradition." 

"It has become common to notice how the Modern Quilt movement has roots and precedents in the tradition," Cunningham says. "What is little noticed is how the advent of the Modern Quilt movement echoes the advent of the 19th century explosion of quilt making. Using my own quilts to illustrate, I will discuss the ways quilt movements rise and fall, and how the founding mothers of the American quilt era created a format that allows for continual renewal."

Admission to the museum and programs is free from 4-7 p.m. on First Fridays.
